The Wild, Tangled Places

By Appreciable Goodfaithpoet

Deep in the wild, tangled places,
Where the close trees block the sun.
Are those who gather with youthful faces.
They've come to find some fun.

Society builds for children a park.
And makes it a safe place to play.
Yet some children go to play in the dark,
Shutting out the light of the day.

Curiosity and a wish for adventure
Can attract children to the woods.
These children want to appear more mature
By taking more risks than they should.

Some find excitement by fording a river,
While it's raging right after the rain,
(A thought that makes wise people shiver)
For excitement can turn into pain

It's better to seek peace and safety.
We don't need to make our lives rough.
For, after a while it's easy to see,
Normal life is exciting enough.
